PDP: Why Sheriff Must Not Be Allowed To Organize National Convention – Makarfi

Chairman of the National Caretaker Committee of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP), Ahmed Makarfi has warned that it would be a poisonous recipe for the party, should the national convention being planned by the National Chairman of the party, Ali Modu Sheriff holds as scheduled.

According to him, if Sheriff organized the party’s national conventional, a few party members might go back to court over their tenures and return the party to more crisis.

Makarfi, who gave the warning while addressing a meeting of Northern PDP Leaders in Abuja, pointed out that the status quo ante meant that the tenure of three members of the PDP National Working Committee (NWC) will expire in August this year, while that of 18 others will end June or July 2017.

He, therefore, maintained that “the only way to solve the present leadership crisis is to embrace the political solution advocated by former President Goodluck Jonathan and the PDP governors, which must see the leadership of factions, step aside and a legal document framed to prevent more court cases over the matter.

The former Kaduna State governor also expressed sadness over the way Bayelsa state governor, Seriake Dickson handled his reconciliation committee assignment, noting that his recommendations would not augur well for the unity of the party.
